Where,       Q = rated capacity of crane in tons,
HS = minimum, or first, hoisting speed in feet per minute, TS = trolley speed in feet per minute, BS = bridge speed in feet per minute, and L = span of bridge in feet.

Cost.—The cost of overhead electric cranes varies between quite wide limits, but reliable approximations can be arrived at by comparative costs based on a known cost of some specific crane of standard type and given span. Index values based on```
